7 Wonderful Aspects of the Church in Ephesians

The church is a profound and deeply significant matter in the Bible. In our post “What Is the Church according to the Bible,” we began to look into the church as it’s revealed in the Scriptures. In this post, we’ll continue to discuss the matter of the church by getting into some verses in Ephesians, a book unique in its rich revelation of what the church is in God’s eyes.

What Is the Church according to the Bible?

People, even Christians, have many concepts about what the church is. But what is the church exactly? Is the church a building Christians go to on Sundays to worship? Is the church an organization of people who believe in Jesus Christ? To discover what God’s thought is concerning the church, we must come to the Bible. While we can’t cover this enormous matter in a single blog post, we’ll begin to...

What Does God Want from Us in Our Christian Life?

We Christians naturally want to please God and make Him happy. But what exactly makes God happy? To please God, we first need to know what He wants. Otherwise, we can spend a lot of time doing things we think He wants, but end up not pleasing Him. Let’s take a look at what we think God wants, and what God actually wants for our Christian life.

Why Does God Let Me Fail?

Have you ever felt very discouraged after you experienced a failure in your Christian life? Perhaps you even asked yourself, “Why does God let me fail? Couldn’t He have prevented me from making this mistake? Doesn’t He want me to have a good Christian testimony?”

What Does God Want?

When we believed in Jesus Christ, we were forgiven by God and delivered from eternal judgment. Not only so, we were also born again, regenerated with the life of God in our spirit. We thank the Lord for these wonderful realities! What tremendous mercy God had on us! But let’s take a moment to ask, Why? Why did God save us? Why did He regenerate us? Going back even further, why did God create us...

Why Does God Want Earthen Vessels?

In 2 Corinthians 4:7, the apostle Paul refers to human beings in a very particular way—earthen vessels: “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels that the excellency of the power may be of God and not out of us.” This verse not only says we’re vessels, but earthen vessels. Perhaps we’d rather be heavenly angels, not lowly jars made out of clay. Why did God make us this way?

Does God Have a Plan?

When we’re little children, many times we play with our toys in a random way, exploring as we learn. But we have no grand scheme or purpose to our play. We simply make it up as we go. But can you imagine God doing something like that? Would the God who is wise, loving, and eternal create the universe without a purpose? Could He create human beings without a purpose?

Was Mankind Created to Be Redeemed?

In the garden of Eden, God lost the part of His creation that He considered very good—mankind. Yet, though man fell under the wiles of Satan, God took a tremendous and necessary step to regain what was rightfully His, created for His own purpose from the beginning. This step is the step of redemption. What is redemption? According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, to redeem is “to get or win...

How Can God Use Me?

As believers, we love the Lord Jesus Christ, and we want to do something for our Savior who gave Himself for us. It’s normal for us to want to serve Him. So we ask God questions like, “What do You want me to do for You?” “Lord, what should I do to serve You?” and “How can You use me?” How God created us The trouble with these kinds of questions is they suggest God created us primarily for the...

What Is God’s Will?

Many of us have asked God at least once, “What is Your will for my life?” Maybe we wanted to know God’s will for what we should study, what kind of job we should have, or whom we should marry. Human nature being what it is, most of us are highly interested in our own affairs. After all, from our perspective, God doesn’t need or want anything for Himself. He’s all-powerful and divine! But have we...
